I much prefer this on a girl.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I have a relative (I think he's my second cousin. Something like that, anyway) named Blair. I didn't know it was even used as a girl's name until recently.

I have loved this name for a long time, it is quite popular here but that still doesn't put me off. It is a strong and handsome name and the fact that it is Scottish is a bonus. I don't really get the 'gone to the girls' thing - it doesn't seem like a girls' name to me.

Momof2Davisgirls Says:


I think it makes a good middle name.

Tbh I can't picture this on a girl at all.

Blair is very ambiguous to me and I can definitely see it still working on a boy.
